I know it's recommended to slowly switch to a new food but how long should the transition take?? I plan on starting out with 1/4 new and 3/4 old, then 1/2 and 1/2, then 3/4 new 1/4 then all new. My question is how long should I feed each "stage" 1 day, several days, a week......???

With Kiah I did 4 to 5 days of each so it took arond three weeks to change over,

Give it the total 3 weeks, 1 week in each stage. Some dogs can handle a quicker change, some actually may take longer...Watch the stools, and note any changes in coat condition, like dryness, etc....

I've been transitioning Odin and I have it planned out to last three weeks... he's doing very well... well I think he's more gassy... but I'm hoping that changes.

Good luck!
